Palakkad: In a threatening statement, a top CPM leader has warned V T Balram MLA that his tongue would be “pulled out” if he dared to make defamatory remarks against communist party leaders.

CPM state committee member M Chandran Friday said that showering abuse on others in the name of freedom of expression was unacceptable.

He was addressing a party march taken out to the MLA's office at Thrithala, demanding apology from him for making derogatory statements against late Communist stalwart A K Gopalan.

CPM's Palakkad district secretary C K Rajendran said that the protests would continue until Balram withdraws his statement. The party has decided to boycott Balram from public events.

Balram courted controversy after he made a Facebook comment which suggested that Gopalan, the first leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha, was a “pedophile”.

The comment invited wrath from several corners with the CPM demanding apology from the Thrithala MLA for defaming the Communist leader and his family and distorting facts.

Balram has refused to apologize even after the Congress distanced itself from his comment.
